ODU AND TCC TO SIGN ADMISSIONS AGREEMENT FOR TCC GRADUATES
Old Dominion University President Roseann Runte and Tidewater Community College President Deborah M. DiCroce will sign a transfer agreement at 9 a.m. Tuesday, July 6, to guarantee qualified TCC graduates admission to Old Dominion to pursue a bachelor's degree. The transfer agreement is part of a larger statewide strategy to link workforce development and community college education with opportunities to earn a baccalaureate degree.
Runte and DiCroce commended the agreement for increasing educational opportunities for all students who have the ability and interest to pursue them.
Under the agreement, TCC students will be guaranteed admission to Old Dominion if they are in transfer programs and meet the applicable requirements. The agreement also provides opportunities for students in career programs to transfer if they meet stated criteria.
Additionally, TCC students will be granted the same consideration as native ODU students with regard to academic program admission and course requirements. TCC and ODU will also develop program-specific articulation agreements to create pathways for TCC students in occupational and technical programs to transfer to the university. The agreements will be reviewed every two years or whenever major changes, due to academic policy, are required.
